That is one seriously overpriced place. I was there for dinner a few days back, and a meal for five, and a drink each (a second for a friend I think) cost us 1,700 per head.

I think we need to go to Shri Thaakar Bhojnalaya to make sure their kitchen can churn out fulkas etc faster then we can finish em off.
gogi, is ample ghee available on the rotis ?

The crust at Indigo Deli is paper thin and really crunchy. Also the quality of ingridients used appears to be really good. I believe the quality of ingridients used makes a bi difference in Italian cooking. I used to consider Don Giovanni to be the best place for pizza but on my last visit I was pretty disappointing. I don't think their pizza has changed so perhaps its just me. The coffee shop at Maratha also surprisingly makes some pretty good pizza - not a bad idea to head over before checking in or while waiting for a delayed flight. Mangi Ferra in Juhu was highly reccomended by a friend for their woodfired pizza but it certainly didn't live up to the hype - neither did Penne, also in Juhu. I haven't tried Cellini as yet is it really that good?

Agreed. Why did I get the feeling that it's more expensive than the Bandra Olive?

I heard lots about trattoria. Then when I finally went it was just average; as in, there was nothing wow! about the pizza, or may be it was just me..

They have separate pricing at both branches?!

Olive mahalaxmi has the worst service possible, everytime I have been there its gotten worse. And they don't even serve their famous sand-fish there!
